Unreal Engine 4 Now Supports PlayStation 4 And Xbox One, No Wii U

Epic Games have announced that the gorgeous Unreal Engine 4 now adds support for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Epic Games says that the new update also adds support for Linux and Valve’s SteamOS operating system. Wii U isn’t included in the latest bout of support, so games based on the engine will likely be skipping the system.

 

Thanks, Carlos

      4. Then it’s sad that a last gen console is being compared to the PS4, I bet Nintendo is laughing because for 2 gens they were able have last gen tech in there consoles and still able to compete with the others. That’s like a flawless fucking victory.

      5. Except Wii U sales are laughably low compared to XB1 and PS4, and compared to the original Wii’s sales in the same amount of time.

        Wii U just isn’t catching on like the original Wii did, or like PS4 & XB1 are. And it’s only getting worse as time goes on. SSB and MK8 aren’t going to help much either. It’ll bolster sales SLIGHTLY and for a very short time, but after that, sales will continue to decline as they are right now.

        That’s the harsh truth of it, sadly.

      6. Nintendo never kept up with the competition. If you haven’t noticed, Wii was the only console that sold well. The generation before that, the gamecube failed in sales. Unless you’re thinking about the PS2. But that’s not Nintendo. You must be a confused child.

      9. No one understands, Wii U is a different type of console, it is its own thing, Nintendo’s don’t try to be like PC’s, that’s why they are unique. To get a full gaming experience you will need a PS4/PC/Xbox One as a main/side console, and a Wii U for a main/side console.

      10. Sorry, but this way of thinking is highly flawed. Nintendo’s console shouldn’t be the “side console.” It shouldn’t be reserved ONLY for first-party games. You can’t roll over and make excuses because Nintendo isn’t delivering. They’re fully competent at making a machine that can run both first and third-party titles. I shouldn’t have to buy two consoles to play the majority of games. Nintendo used to get third-party games, and now they’re not, and it’s not the third-parties’ fault.

      12. Sadly, there are way fewer 3rd party games coming out now than ever before. Seems hardcore audiovisuals are too expensive to cater to gamers. Gameplay, difficulty, & imaginative æsthetics are now a liability. Unless 3rd parties can announce more than what interests me (Watch_Dogs, Human Element, & Sonic Boom), I really will have to rely on indies & Nintendo (or buy a PS2). By no means a bad thing, but I do miss a lot of IPs that SEGA, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, etc., used to make, & make well. Nowadays? Resident Evil is a weak corpse. Tomb Raider has been looted; empty. Batman’s vain, overly aggressive, & on ‘roids. Castlevania has been resurrected but w/ out its fangs. NiGHTS sleeps a dreamless sleep. Viewtiful Joe has been canned. Fighters have been crippled by online parity & are w/ out a story or a solid single-player experience (except maybe SSB). Racers have no tracks & nowhere to go (save Mario Kart, The 90s Arcade Racer, Fast Racing Neo, & Project CARS, but only one major publisher). AC is a walk in the park, although the prince has a new chance to reclaim his rightful throne. IGA & Inafune-san left their 3rd parties.

        I own an SNES, N64, GCN, Wii, & Wii U (also an Atari, Saturn, & PSone). But each library has always had more 3rd party titles than 1st/2nd. But in the 8th gen the focus on gaming has changed, & I don’t like its mainstream products. Wii, Wii U, & in some cases, PC, are all that’s keeping true gaming afloat. Of course, I remember the glory days when the video games industry itself was niche, & dominated by Japanese creativity & dedication (w/ some Western exceptions). But, while Sony helped bring it into the mainstream, they’ve themselves jumped ship for the easiest lifesaver they could grab onto, just as 3rd parties did. Too bad only a select few know that those lifesavers, those money bags, can only float so long ’til they pull companies & entire industries down to drown. But hey, saying the world’s round can be a dangerous concept. Oh, their yachts look nice, but board them & you just might notice the GPS & the sextant are either broken, or both missing entirely. 3rd parties should just make movies, but then they wouldn’t be able to charge $60 a pop, even though they can barely succeed @ being solvent.

        “Ice berg dead ahead,” I yelled. But they only heard ‘snowcones!’.

      13. If 3rd parties had put their games on the Wii U during 2013, it wouldn’t be a “failing” console right now. 3rd parties had a chance to gain a foothold on the Wii U with good games, helping the Wii U sell consoles, and they BLEW it! So yes! They are partly to blame. It’s not fully Nintendo’s fault. Most 3rd parties don’t care about their fans. They only care about the money. And what would get them more money? Making games for the twins that have the same architecture that they are use to working with. But I guess in the end it is fully Nintendo’s fault. Nintendo’s fault they took the chance of giving 3rd parties a chance to gain a foothold & actually make their games sell a lot for once on a Nintendo console for the first time in years. So yes. I have to ultimately agree with you.

        I really kind of hate that about a lot of Nintendo fans, many of you act like nothing bad can be said about Nintendo ever..

        Sorry that not everything is rainbows and ponies but the fact you can’t accept anything bad being said about the Wii U must mean you are pretty biased towards the system.

        I think it is actually pretty important to know a new engine will not be supported on the system, whether or not you can handle it really isn’t my problem. I can and it won’t stop me from enjoying the console but at least now I know what to expect.

        It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone anyway and I said this ever since the PS4 and Xbox One were announced that this would be a recurring situation given the vast differences in hardware.

        I realize a lot of Wii U owners could give a rats ass about third party games anyway, so that doesn’t help either. No just blame everything else though right cause the Wii U is perfect? Sheesh.

The install base excuse isn’t credible anymore, these 3rd parties just don’t want to put their games on the Wii U because a majority of them don’t sell well but a large part of that blame is on the 3rd parties for gimping out features and not taking advantages of the system. If 3rd parties want their games to sell better on the Wii U they should put more of an effort into properly developing them and use the unique capabilities of the gamepad to enhance a gamer’s experience rather than lazily porting them

      7. But the reason why install base doesn’t matter here is because X1’s architecture is the same as the sales-leader’s, PS4, which in turn is the same as most PC (where games originate). So here it’s a matter of port dumping, rather than installbase. Laziness is a part of it, but so are finances. 3rd parties put in the work for PC & PS4, then look @ the X1 as a quick buck w/ minimal risk. Although, installbase. & speed is starting to come into play when 1080 is difficult to achieve on X1, & w/ out some kind of parity, multiplats on another platform could be sabotaged if the audiovisuals were the main hook. But yeah, 3rd parties are reluctant to work on consoles.

    2. Maybe at a later date. Sounds like this was an update, and now supports those platforms. Sites like this one are making it sound really bad as if it’s never coming. Those platforms all work somewhat close to the same architecture so it makes sense that it’s now available on those, now they can work on whatever other platforms are needed, but they wouldn’t delay the release of the updated engine simply because it’s not ready for all platforms. Unfortunately sites like this trade on bad news rather than good or balanced.

      3. Not exactly. Nintendo has pretty much screwed up their chance with SSB, which probably was their biggest chance to make the WiiU strike back majorly. By choosing to bring it to the 3DS as well, they literally gave people reasons to -not- buy a WiiU. I mean, as far as I know, there are about 40 million people who own a 3DS, and around 5-6 million WiiU owners. So, why would 40 million people decide to spend $350+ for a game (they’d have to buy the WiiU as well, after all), if they might as well just go ahead and buy it for $40 ? Why would people who own neither of the two systems decide to spend $350 if they might as well get it for 140$ (with the 2DS) ? Additionally, since they would use the system of their choice for other games besides SSB as well, why would they decide to go for a system with a comparatively small library of games when they can get one with a much larger library for nearly 1/3 of the price of that other system, when both of them make it possible to play the game (SSB) they are going to buy the system for primarily ?
        But, as if that wasn’t enough already, they also decided to release the 3DS version several months prior to the WiiU version. Seriously makes me wonder what the people over at Nintendo are even thinking. First of all, after the 3DS version of the game is out, the hype over the game is going to decrease significantly. People won’t be as interested in it anymore as they are right now. Second thing, people who were still uncertain about which version to get are most likely going to go for the 3DS version now, because normally, people don’t like to wait, especially if the wait is for 4-6 months. Why would people wait several months to get a game they want if they could just go and buy it already, even for cheaper than the version that’s gonna release months later? For the HD graphics ? The version exclusive stages ? Probably not.
        It just shows me how desperately they’re after the quick money. Instead of waiting a few months, they just decide to ruin their own chances of making the WiiU have a huge comeback. People were expecting SSB to release in winter anyway, so why not just wait and bring out both versions at the same time ? Hell, they even could have released the WiiU version first and the 3DS one later, would have been more profitable for them in the long run. Getting lots of 3DS software sales isn’t as important than getting lots of WiiU software PLUS hardware sales. The 3DS has sold, and still is selling, more than enough already. The WiiU hasn’t and isn’t. Not at all. They can not afford to let the WiiU fail. Sure, Nintendo still has a lot of money in reserve, but they have invested both money AND time into the WiiU, so having it fail is, no matter how much money they have, anything but good.
        But no, why try to show some support for the WiiU and the WiiU owners when they can just make money and continue to not give a crap about their supporters. Way to go Nintendo.

        tl;dr: No, SSB isn’t going to help the WiiU as much as people expect it to.

      5. Yeah, it’s a gamble. But people might see the 3DS version & Wii U version are different enough that the 3DS version is just a taste of what the Wii U version can offer. Kinda like consumer-paid advertising, but more than just a pay-to-play demo. Maybe the physical game will have inserts advertising Wii U & the Wii U version. Maybe SSB is popular enough than many will buy both.

      6. But did they say they were skipping it outright? Or is the news that the engine has been updated and now supports these platforms, being taken out of context to mean it’s skipping the Wii U?
        Will it be coming at a later date? Now that they’ve checked off PS4/Xbox One off of their list, are they now moving on to Wii U?

      7. There was an article awhile back telling us that Epic isn’t working to make it work for Wii U but other 3rd parties could make it work for Wii U by putting their own time, money, & effort into it if they so chose. So this article is unfortunately click-bait since we already know about the Wii U stuff. “Wii U isn’t included in the latest bout of support, so games based on the engine will likely be skipping the system.” He just put that in so it could have some relation to Nintendo even though the actual article mentioned nothing about Wii U.

      8. How is this not news about the WiiU ? If you really are interested in information about the WiiU, it should be of your concern if a major engine like UE4 is skipping it. Not saying that all games that are using UE are all fantastically great or anything, but a lot of them are huge titles that enjoy a lot of attention, so seeing that the WiiU won’t get those isn’t going to have that much of a positive effect on it, obviously. It’s going to play a – maybe not so small – part in contributing to make not only developers, but also potential customers, skip it. So basically, the WiiU isn’t only going to miss out on UE4, but also games, and consequentially, sales.

      9. And how do you know if every great game will support it? It will most likely be the most expensive engine on the market with the maybe the CryEngine 4 being second (which supports the Wii U btw) and a lot of developers may shy away from it and start developing their own engines, hell Ubisoft, Activision, EA, Sega, Square Enix, Capcom and Konami have already created their own next-gen engines. Unreal Engine 4 is a good engine but it’s not the holy grail of next-gen engines. If it was then it would be supporting every game being made now which is not the case

      10. I didn’t say that every great game will support it. Neither did I say that it’s the holy grail of next-gen engines. And just because other developers have created their own engines, doesn’t mean no big title will make use of UE4. Look at the list of UE3 titles. There are a bunch of big titles that got lots of attention during the past few years. And I don’t think it’s going to be much different with UE4.
        Yes, there will be developers shying away from it, but there also are going to be developers that will make good use of it.

      11. The reason why I feel it’s not necessarily WiiU news is because it’s not specifically about WiiU, but rather taking something from the Unreal Engine release notes and turning into bad news. Unreal Engine 4 is just a piece of software like anything else, and is always being updated.
        Today’s release notes state: Unreal Engine 4.1 is here, with full support for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at no extra cost to subscribers.

        That is news for Xbox One and PS4. It doesn’t state that it is skipping Wii U for certain, it simply says that the update released today now supports PS4 and Xbox One. And inside the notes mentions SteamOS and Linux Support. Again that doesn’t mean it is skipping the WiiU, just that the current updates are for other systems.

    Mario Kart arrives at the end of next month, so that is 2 games in nearly 6 months?LOL
    3rd party did give the Wii U their support at the beginning but NO ONE bought their games, the Wii U install base is ONLY half of that the Gamecube sold in the same lifespan as the Wii U!!
    The reason 3rd party do not even try to make games in that they will make NO MONEY so what is the point of wasting their resources and time when they can release games on PS3 and 360 of a combined user base of 160 Million, or PS4 and Xbox One a combined user base of 12 Million?
    The Wii U has sold pathetic, the name,zero marketing,terrible launch games.delay after delay and the lame price is what has killed the Wii U!
    Seriously $300 for a little bit better graphics than the 7 year old PS3 and a gimmick controller that even after 20 months Nintendo is clueless as to what to do with it and then you wonder why 3rd party do not even try!!
    Yes Mario Kart 8 and Smash are coming but the install base is to low for the games to make the massive impact that Nintendo would hope!
    It is to late, Smash will sell more on the 3DS and has better features!
    Nintendo should just ditch the Wii U as NOTHING will save it.

And this story matters because it’s just a heads up that a lot more games may be skipping the Wii U. We can’t just ignore it and keep talking about Mario Kart and Smash(well… we could and it’d be fun, but we shouldn’t). If Wii U keeps following this trend then Nintendo themselves will have to address it in one way or another. I have a Wii U and 3DS XL, I also have a gaming PC, 360 and i’m getting a PS4 & Xbox One at some point, I get it; Wii U is just another “Nintendo Box” but that doesn’t bode well for them in 2014. You can’t tell people buy our systems for our first party line up (which isnt really showing up strong until nearly 2 years after the console’s launch) and nothing else. The third party titles we get are usually late and/or sub par quality and with new generations of kids knowing and having less appreciation for classic Nintendo IP’s you can’t expect them to always buy these Nintendo boxes, miss out on the hyper trend games their friends are playing and they don’t even know/like Nintendo games that much. It will become somewhat of a problem. Especially when we haven’t seen half of Nintendo’s fan favorites in quite a while. Metroid, F-Zero, etc. They either need to just cater to us super nostalgic Nintendo gamers and make us spend all our money (which wouldn’t be hard, Nintendo can make THE BEST games EVER when they feel like it) or they need to play the modern console role a little better. Of course they could just go after the casual market even harder/convert more non-gamers into new gamers, but considering the “original marketing” for Wii U was that it’s Nintendo shifting focus back to U (You) the core gamer, I can’t lie, i’d be very disappointed if they ignored long time fans once again…

    I’d love to see what would happen if Nintendo played the power game again next generation. If their machine was at least tied for most powerful market console… If they had the biggest 3rd party titles (presented the best) AND their first party line-up they’d really dominate. No one could stop them. Micro and Sony have decent exclusives but they couldn’t sell more Halo/Uncharted boxes than the Ultimate 3rd party box and a Nintendo box combined. They’d have to be really clever. But that may never happen.

    All that said, i’m sure im now hated by someone and seem like some anti Nintendo nazi, an Xbot or SonyPony . If so whatever, you can’t read. I just wish all the Nintendo fans could get together and tell them what we want clearly and reasonably. No yelling, immaturity, etc. Just things that make sense that they seem to be reluctant to do.

    Before the Wii everyone was exited about new systems because of the graphics and capabilities and the fact people say they don’t matter show the expectations for Nintendo are really low.

    Everyone always says gameplay > graphics and while i agree, to say graphics aren’t important is stupid, a horror game on an nes wouldn’t provide the same experience as with today’s systems. The power of a system can improve the gameplay as well as the graphics. People even contradict themselves by saying how good the graphics are in Mario kart 8 but as soon as news like this comes graphics don’t matter again.

    If Nintendo fans really had high expectations for Nintendo they would be hating the Wii U for it’s faults even more than the “haters” but no Nintendo fan are fine no third party support, almost no online games and almost no new IP’s and the Wii u graphics aren’t even a big problem for me mario kart 8 looks great but the people on this site are just stupid.

As for consoles & their extras, Wii U, for me, is more than enough (I get online mostly to download games).

  22. Oh damn…theses guys are just to stupid seriously to say Unreal Engine 4 wont support the Wii U. Why ? Cuz remember when EA said that Frosbite 3 wont support the Wii U BUT the PS3 and 360 are supported ?! FIND THE ERROR ! Epic Games are just too incompetent they said the Wii U wont support Unreal 4 when they just dont want it to make that possible, NO EFFORTS ! There are juste a whole bunch of lazy people who dont give a simple f*** if the Wii U can run their engine or not. This is just so patetic.

    1. The problem is that Nintendo would have had to pay a lot of money to bring Ur4.eng. on the Wii U, but it is known that Nintendo not to tell anyone your money for nothing ..
      To me they have the right, and because they have so much money!

  23. Many people hate Nintendo/Wiiu, that won’t change the fact that the Wiiu is the best console of this generation and probably will be until the end of this generation, the Wiiu already has many quality games (not counting the advertised), and has a Hardware that shows every day more efficiency, it’s E3 should bring a lot of new stuff to the console,You can be sure,Nintendo needs just some attitudes to take on your console (how to speed up the process of things), but while on the one hand the Sony is appealing bringing ports de recent games for the PS3 (as the Last of US) for lack of games, the owners of Nintendo platforms are having the level of quality they are accustomed to, it’s just a matter of time to improve the console even more,it has plenty of potential.

  24. Let’s face it people. All consoles have great looking games. No game these days really sucks, at least not graphically. Even casual games looks nice. And graphics will only get better from this point on. I personally think that the Wii U’s graphics look amazing. I’m currently playing Assassin’s Creed IV. I mean, the graphics certainly doesn’t suck.

    I think that far too many people (and companies) are putting too much emphasis on power. They don’t need to. All games look great now. And it doesn’t matter how much power they put into any console, people are still going to buy the console that has the games they like. Like for me, if Nintendo’s games still had 8 and 16-bit graphics, I’d still only buy Nintendo’s consoles. Because their games have always been my favorite.

    1. This is very similar to how I feel. Power is definitely at the point where I care about it very little now. Unfortunately you and I happen to be in the minority on this.

    2. At this point, instead of making consoles more powerful for the sake of graphics, they SHOULD be focusing on making consoles more powerful to make games longer & more sandbox-y. As you said, graphics look fucking great now so screw them for the next decade or so. It’s time to focus on length of games now instead of graphics.

  25. I love how all of the Nintendrones always blame the failure of the Wii U on Microsoft and Sony and not Nintendo’s stupid and backwards business practices. While Sony was going around gathering info on what third parties want out of PS4, Nintendo was thinking about how they’re going to build as weak of a system as possible because in the end, all they’re gonna release for it are upressed Wii or GC games.

    While MS and Sony look to fill their release schedules, Nintendo is forced to purposely delay games on Wii U because of the lack of future content. I’ll almost certain that if they had more games coming out in the holiday season, Smash and Watch Dogs would’ve not been delayed. It’s as if the entire Nintendo board used to ride the retard rocket (short buss) to school.

    1. Not every business is going to be shallow. Power? Wii U’s power gap isn’t as big as Wii’s, yet Wii had plenty of support & games that actually HAD to be games compared to the competition’s overemphasis on graphics, cutscenes, & quick-time events.

      Nintendo wants to create games, so that’s what they’ll continue to do. It’s not like they can use funds from other business sectors to offset the deficits from selling hardware @ a loss. Just because they have a huge warchest doesn’t mean they should pull an MS & lose huge amounts of money, no matter how popular they might be. But even Sony & MS resorted to off-the-shelf parts & a familiar-but-dated architecture from 1978 because their other business sectors are tanking.

  26. They aren’t making the engine for the Wii U because they don’t want to, blame the sales of the third parties for the console, but it’s true, 3rd parties just can’t be compared to 1st sometimes. :D

  27. Perhaps no one will read this but ANY REASON BESIDES EPIC BEING BIAS against Nintendo is the wrong reason. Newer engines are WAY more flexible and optimizable than ever. Wii U’s power has NOTHING to do with it. Dont believe me? Hear take a look.

    ANYTHING after this point are Trolls being trolls…
